Hi Tatyana,

Thank you so much! That was a fantastic, useful lesson for beginners like me. You are a great teacher.

Please could you write the Arabic words below, so I can practice understanding them. Would that be ok with you? I would then like to start adding audios of myself practicing Arabic on Lingora smiley

I see that Arabic is also a language with two noun genders like the other languages I learn. This is going to make it harder for me haha.

I have a question - do the basic words, grammar and accent vary a lot depending on the country where Arabic is spoken? For example, would people in Saudi Arabia say "Hello" differently to people in Jordan or Oman?

Hi again 

thanks a lot smiley.Yes ,sure thats great you to practice Arabic by repeating words , exellent idea . thats will be great  to start adding audios that I can too help you  , I believe the the key for learning any language is by listenning , speaking ( practicing ) thinking out loud  , so bravo thats a very good idea . And by the time and more effort and practicing a lot you will become able to speak Arabic fluntely and understand Arabic and the native speaker also will be able to undestand you too  . Well that a good question  no not exactly  I can understand  what the other people what are they saying  for example people from Egypt , lebanon,... except some countries   but in general  yes we can understand each other and communicate easily  , maybe in some word but at the end we can understand what are they saying . Another thing accent is different but we also understand  each other . A bout grammar not everyone can teach it or know eveyrthing  in universities we have  students  study Arabic language , we stydy the Arabic grammar in schools and universities , but not everyone is able to teach it if someone for example want s to become teacher of Arabic language he must specialized in Arabic language  .And by the way the words that I use was slang  we everyday use them . About the last thing or we can say the last example about the word hello yes it's different from one country to another  but we can understand each other  . Even in the same country there are different accents but we still understand each other too .
